What weve learned…
  • There is no TEK written which requires teachers
    to trace a family tree back several generations.
    This is impossible to do in the time frame of a
    school assignment.
  • We do teach common characteristics of different
    cultures and how our own cultural heritage
    influences our own beliefs and prior knowledge
    through speaking or reading about different
    cultures.

21
As librarians, we can…
  • Redirect the assignment to the TEKS
  • Help the teacher adapt the assignment
  • Give ideas of how to meet the TEKS in other ways

22
Be cognizant of…
  • how stressful this assignment is to
    non-traditional families
  • Adoptive families
  • Children of divorced parents
  • Foster children
  • Alternative lifestyles

23
Help the teacher
  • Plan for different ways the assignment can be
    completed
  • Be accepting of all results
  • Alternatives can include a make believe family
    based on some person in history
